Bradford lights it up in pro day

Posted on: March 29, 2010 1:17 pm Senior Analyst Rob Rang attended the much-anticipated pro day for QB Sam Bradford this morning. 21 teams were officially in attendance, including the main players in the Bradford sweepstakes: St. Louis Rams General Manager Billy Devaney and head coach Steve Spagnuolo, and Washington Redskins General Manager Bruce Allen.

Bradford did nothing today to hurt his chances of being a top five pick. He completed 62 of 63 passes on the day, first warming up with his receivers before running through a 50-pass scripted session. The routes to be run were passed out to teams before the event started so they knew exactly what to expect. Bradford was crisp and accurate, with no signs of any problems with the shoulder injury that knocked him out for most of the 2009 season. He did not run or perform any other drills during the workout.

The only incompletion on the day came when senior receiver Adron Tennell dropped the fourth pass of the session, a slant placed right on his hands.

Other NFL personnel in attendance included Cleveland Browns President Mike Holmgren and head coach Eric Mangini, Seattle Seahawks General Manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll, Buffalo Bills General Manager Buddy Nix, as well as San Francisco Director of Player Personnel Trent Baalke and head coach Mike Singletary.

It's no surprise full contingents from these teams looking for quarterbacks made the trip to Oklahoma to see if Bradford's shouder is ready to go.

Watch for Rob's article fully detailing the workout later today on
